(In response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, all non-essential programming and in-person gatherings have been canceled through April 30, 2020, and perhaps beyond.)
The Sewing Group meets every week in the Upper Lounge on the 2nd floor, working to create crib-size or lap quilts, decorative pillows, and walker “carry bags,” as well as knitted hats, sweaters, mittens, scarves, and baby items. Our donations are given to:
- Mom’s House
- the YWCA
- Rescue Mission
- Meals on Wheels
- Camp Sunshine (for children with terminal cancer)
Care facilities including
- Willow Point
- Fairview Good Shepherd
- United Methodist Homes (Elizabeth Church & St. Louise Manor)
- Absolute Care
as well as our homebound members and our UPC lobby. Any newborns in our congregation receive a quilt gift.
Anyone interested is encouraged to join them on Wednesday mornings starting at 9am. Bring a sandwich to enjoy lunch during fellowship at 12 noon. No special sewing skills are needed for cutting squares, design layout, pinning, tying, setting the table for lunch, or heating water for tea. Sewing machine and hand hemming skills are a plus.
